    Parking and Traffic Flow

     
    Dear Nimitz Parents,
     
     
    Our school is ready to welcome our students for this new school year. Their security is our number one priority at Nimitz Nation. Therefore, we’ve created systematic measures to manage traffic congestion during peak hours (morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up). At this time of the year we want to remind you about our traffic management plan that will help us minimize traffic incidents.
     
     
    Effective Monday August 24th, all parents that may need to come into the building for any reason, (documents drop-off, conference with teachers or administrators, visit to the counselors, etc.) during peak hours, should park in the West Parking Lot (auditorium, library and baseball field side), in the designated parking for visitors or in the available spaces by the students parking lot.
     
     
    In order to ensure a continuous flow of traffic and avoid traffic jams, student drop-off and pick-up will be permitted in the front of the building (One-Way, West to East) and West Side along the horseshoe (leaving the center lanes open). The East Parking Lot (Gyms, Football and Soccer fields) will be used ONLY for Buses, Staff and Students with disabilities (drop-off and pick-up). 
     
     
    Please note that our Campus Auxiliary Officers will direct traffic flow in the most effective way, which may require for motorists to drive and turn on specific directions. Please pay attention to changes on your driving routines around the building and be patient and courteous with everyone, including our Security Staff. Last but not least, please remind your son/daughter to look both sides before crossing, to use the crosswalk and always follow directions from our CAO’s.  Let’s make it a great school year for Nimitz Nation!!!
     
     
    Estimados padres de Nimitz High School,
     
     
     
    Nuestra escuela está lista para recibir nuestros estudiantes este nuevo año escolar. Su seguridad es nuestra prioridad en Nimitz High School. Por esta razón hemos delineado medidas sistemáticas para el manejo del tránsito este año y así evitar accidentes.
     
    Efectivo el lunes 24 de agosto, cualquier padre en necesidad de realizar alguna gestión dentro del edificio, deberá estacionarse en la parte Oeste (lado del auditorio, la biblioteca y el campo de beisbol) en los estacionamientos designados para visitantes o en los espacios disponibles en el estacionamiento de estudiantes. 
     
     
    Para garantizar el flujo continuo de vehículos y minimizar la congestión vehicular, se permitirá el despacho y recogido de estudiantes a través del redondel central (en dirección Oeste a Este) durante la mañana y la tarde. El estacionamiento del lado Este del edificio (lado de los gimnasios y los campos de futbol) será utilizado, SOLO para el tránsito de autobuses, acceso a la facultad o a padres de estudiantes con algún tipo de impedimento. Estas restricciones serán validas y aplicadas tanto en la mañana como en la tarde. 
     
     
    Note por favor que, dependiendo de las condiciones del tránsito, nuestros oficiales auxiliares de seguridad podrán manejar las direcciones de flujo de la manera más efectiva posible, así que, esté preparado para manejar en la dirección sugerida en casos especiales. Su cortesía y paciencia nos ayudara a comenzar un año escolar con grandes logros para todos. 
     
     
    Por último, pero no menos importante: recuerde a su hijo/a , siempre mirar a ambos lados antes de cruzar la calle, utilizar el cruce peatonal  y siempre seguir las directrices de nuestros oficiales auxiliares de seguridad escolar.
